Charge against airman is dropped

September 16, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

The Air Force has dropped a criminal indecency charge filed against an airman who refused to testify against another airman she had accused of rape, her attorney said Friday.

The commander of the 43rd Airlift Wing at Pope Air Force Base decided last week to drop the indecency charge, which alleged sex in the presence of others, said Capt. Christopher Eason, an attorney for Airman 1st Class Cassandra Hernandez, 20.

Hernandez's attorneys said the charge was filed in retaliation for her refusal to testify.
